Wow, bigger than the 5D?
That's a big claim.
But hey, I'd love to see Pentax succeed with this cam.
LOL! Yea I suppose it is a big claim! (considering I've always been a loyal Canon user too...)
The price point is what sets it apart, bringing medium-format into the realm of the mass consumer market. Think about what these will be going for used in 3 years time, US$4,900?

I'll be using it in harsh landscape, industrial & aerial photography... Pentax have noted that the 645D has been built for rugged use (using 70 Dustproof & weather-resistant seals). But it's image quality & compactness would also make it great for wedding photography, fine arts & fashion shoots to mention a few...

haha, I don't know if I'll be able to post many 'nice shots' (ie. masterpieces like many of you creative photographers can create), since I'm more into technical imaging, but I'll certainly post some of my better shots on any projects that might have some more interesting subject matter...
